Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Who Was John?

Old blues/gospel song by the immortal Son House:

Well, whos that ridin, john the revelator
Tell me whos the ridin, john the revelator
Tell me whos that ridin, john the revelator
Wrote the book of the seventh seal

Well, God walked down in the cool of the day
And he called adam by his name
He refused to answer
cause he was naked and ashamed

Tell me whos that ridin, john the revelator
Tell me whos there ridin, john the revelator
Tell me whos there ridin, john the revelator
Wrote the book of the seventh seal

Well, christ had twelve apostles
And he led twelve away
Said walk with me one hour til
I go on and pray.

Tell me whos that ridin, john the revelator
Tell me whos that ridin, john the revelator
Tell me whos that ridin, john the revelator
Wrote the book of the seventh seal

Christ came down easter mornin
Mary and martha came to see
Said, go tell my disciples
Meet me down in galilee

Tell me whos that ridin, john the revelator, etc.

(--son house)

Gov't Mule did an amazing rendition with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band in New Orleans (on the Deepest End DVD)

Just checked out www.thejerrysite.com and Who Was John was performed 26 times, all of them in 1976. It also gives all the dates if anyone is looking to seach out any of the other performances.
